We love kilt hose! Nothing makes a Highland outfit stand out from the crowd as much as the right pair of hose. Our favorite style is a simple plain colored sock with a patterned top, as seen worn by such fashionable kilt wearers as His Royal Highness Prince Charles and clan chiefs such as Sir Malcolm MacGregor. Hose in this style can even be spotted in vintage photos of King George VI when he was out and about in Highland attire.
The tops of our hose are hand knit from 100% superwash wool in the colors and pattern of your choosing. They are then affixed to a solid color sock, machine knit from a Merino wool blend by House of Cheviot in Hawick, Scotland. These socks are made with a fully reinforced foot area, making them comfortable to wear, and also very durable. (Most socks wear out first in the toe and heel. Reinforcing this area greatly extends the life of the sock.) They are machine washable in cool water, delicate cycle. Please allow to air dry.
You may order one of our standard patterns (shown below). Or, if you have an idea for your own design, email us and we will see what we can do. Our knitter (my lovely wife, Joannie) can handle most reasonable requests.
Cost is $95.00 per pair. Please note standard sock and yarn color options when you order.
